My reflection today continues from Fresh Bread:
“ Jesus referred to throwing away all defensive armor when he said, ‘Only if you lose your life for my sake will you find it.‘ Jesus was talking about the autumns in our lives – those moments of vulnerability when we are asked to shed our armor, to risk relationships, when we open ourselves to try something new so that more of our giftedness can be shared, when we walk the extra mile or turn the other cheek or forgive seventy times seven.” – Joyce Rupp
During these pandemic times many are finding themselves more vulnerable than usual.
This is when we need to dig deep down and draw on our faith in Jesus.
He left us an example and now it is our turn to walk that extra mile.
